a flash drive, _exactly_ because I _don't_ want it modifying the Windows
configurations. Instead, when I want to have Notetab on a flash drive, I
simply copy the Notetab folder from the "Program Files" folder. Then, I
drop to command-line and run Notetab from the flash drive with the /USB
switch -- once. That makes the necessary changes to the notepro.ini so
NT now works in "portable mode."
I imagine you are using the /USER and /INI switches to force Notetab to
use a different profile folder. Personally, other than for portable use,
I didn't find any particular advantage in doing so in my regular Windows
desktop -- I'm one of the few voices here who applauded moving user
preferences from the program folder to %APPDATA% -- but everybody's
needs are different, I guess.
